From the reviews of the critically acclaimed First Edition:
"Their scenario is dark, and their strategies bold and unconventional. But after being on target the last time they went against the grain, the Wiedemers merit being heard out."
—The Associated Press
"Surrounded as we are by growing talk of recovery and news about 'green shoots,' it's still refreshing to consider the different perspective that Wiedemer, Wiedemer, and Spitzer offer here."
—Robert J. Hughes, SmartMoney
"Aftershock makes a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. Their track record demands our attention."
—Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's
"The fragility of today's economy demands that we, as investors, allocate our assets with more prudence and focus than ever before. The authors' prescience in their first book lends credence to their new warnings. This book deserves our attention."
—Robert Friedman, former CFO, Goldman Sachs
"Their first book, America's Bubble Economy, was one of those rare finds that not only predicted the subprime credit meltdown well in advance, it offered Main Street investors a winning strategy. Now they've done it again."
—Paul B. Farrell, JD, PhD, Senior Columnist, Dow Jones/MarketWatch
